In my opinion, it really isn't a good idea to have two different RC cars to support - ok, I have a 710 and a 705, but I have a hell of a lot of parts for my 705 and with the 710 I'm moving onto a car which is more manageable.
If you want a second car, you should really consider a second 710, as you negate the benefits when you buy a different car to the one with which you practice/race, i.e. inter-changability of parts should something break.
You may even have to use a different RC dealer to stock your supplies for the second car. Also would you get the right level of support at the track you race.
When you concentrate on one car, you can better learn how to set the car up; what its pecularities are, etc.
With a completely different car, you'll have to learn all of these for a second time.
If you feel the 710 isn't robust for you, then get a 705 from ebay - they are at real bargin level and a very sturdy.
Your decision at the end of the day.
